One of my co-workers used to come running in with a cucumber, couple of carrots, fresh lime and a jar of chili powder, she would slice the veggies and toss with the lime juice and sprinkle the chili powder every few bites or so as a way of having a quick on the run lunch without eating fast food.

DH loved this. I did too. Light and spritely and easy to make.

This is a really light and spicy veggie salad which keeps you coming back again and again just to nibble. I absolutely love carrots and I used some homegrown cucumbers that someone brought me from the farm. I used regular chili powder this time, but I might try ancho chili powder next time around. I am making quesadillas today and will serve this salad with them -- if there is any left. Made for Newest Zaar Tag, May, 2012.
